Waila!

Waila!

by Various

Originally released in 1972, these are the legendary first two recordings of waila, the energetic social dance music of the Native American peoples of the southern Arizona desert. Also referred to as "Chicken Scratch," the vibrant melodies of saxophone, accordion, and electric guitar glide across the solid backbeat of bass and drums performing polkas, schottisches, and mazurkas. This newly remastered collection brings together class recordings of this musical hybrid rooted in the contacts between European immigrants and the Tohono O'odham peoples.

Tracks 1-4 are performed by El Conjunto Murrietta. Tracks 5-11 are performed by Mike Enis and Company. Tracks 12-17 are performed by Los Papagos Molinas. Tracks 18-13 are performed by Elvin Kelly y Los Reyes.
